Auckland Zoo have updated their FAQs for the South East Asian Precinct, including answering questions about the return of their Bornean orangutan; if the zoo will be importing more Sumatran tigers; and if the zoo will be importing more orangutans (presumably the Sumatran species): South East Asia Development | Auckland Zoo When will the orangutans be coming back to the Zoo? It’s not possible to give an exact date, but our orangutans will be back at Auckland Zoo by early 2020. Will the Zoo be getting more orangutans? Yes, as part of a zoos’ international breeding programme for these endangered primates, we will welcome more orangutans in the future. Dates for more orangutans arriving are yet to be confirmed. Will the Zoo be getting more tigers? Yes. As part of zoos’ international breeding programme for these Critically Endangered big cats, we will be welcoming more Sumatran tigers, who will have a home in our expansive new tiger habitat. A date for more tiger(s) arriving is yet to be confirmed. Crab eating macaques are not specifically mentioned in this question, however: Will there be new species? Yes! We are excited to share that in addition to orangutans, siamang gibbons, tigers and otters, our new South East Asia area will be home to the stunning Asian crocodile species, the Sunda gharial, a rich diversity of fish species including Asian arowana and other reptiles. Potentially we may welcome some other new species as well. We will keep you posted! I hope they are they ‘other new species’ they ‘may potentially’ welcome (vague stuff guys); and that they haven’t been scrapped.
